(SPOT.ph) Starry spectacle ruled the scene at the recently-concluded Bench Universe fashion show, held at the Mall of Asia Arena last Thursday and Friday. The retail giant yanked out all the stops for the latest edition of their twice-a-year show: contracting Mig Ayesa and Far East Movement for the performances, importing talent from America's Next Top Model, and flying in a trio of Filipino fashion designers based in Dubai.
It was these designers—Michael Cinco, Furne One and Esra Santos—along with Randy Ortiz, Cary Santiago, Rajo Laurel, Joey Samson and Ivar Aseron, who designed the show's costumes, which ranged from black minimalist to over-the-top Byzantine. Here are our favorite over-the-top outfits of the night and the lucky stars who got to wore them.
